More bits and bobs added, superstructure not fixed in place.

                            Starting to look busy now. Superstructure still not fixed.
              Note the distressed condition of the paint on the hull, this took a while,
I'm still not sure about it but it's done now and sealed in place so I can't change
it without a complete, re-spray. Msea may recognise the picture that gave
me the inspiration to have a bash.
             Next time consuming task is to build the masts out of brass instead of plastic
or a combination of both.
Hey Ho.
Haddock.
Pictures a bit blurred, sorry about that, I'll try harder next time.

Some work done on the masts, a mix of brass and plastic.

Progress is painfully slow, here's a couple of the reasons.
The railings around the gun deck consist of five individual pieces of three different pitches.
The platform atop the foremast gave me more problems than you can shake a stick at, it's just not designed to fit and a pig to bend and assemble.

We all have confidence in you to get a perfect fit and finish to it in the end -- a little naughty nautical language along the way could help ??!!!???

                                   Boat handling cranes added. Difficult to build due to the jib supplied in four separate pieces of brass. It would have been so much easier had it been one piece, folded an glued. Hey ho!

                                   Here's some signal flag halyards.
                    I nearly abandoned ship with these but then I had a eureka moment and all became sweetness and light.

Excellent work on the rigging - I would have given up 1/4 way through - well done that man.

Brilliant and awe inspiring...
